Bath-based HCL Clamping, specialists in subsea and downhole clamping systems, is launching Smart Protector, a new polymer-based range of downhole cable protectors developed in cooperation with Shell.

The new range will be showcased at ATCE New Orleans in September and at ADIPEC Abu Dhabi in November.

Smart Protector will complement the Boss Clamp portfolio purchased by HCL in May 2013.

The lightweight, patented Smart Protector range can be used for a variety of cable sizes and configurations. According to the manufacturer, it is the first product of its kind capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 250°C and fits any tubing diameter. Smart Protector can be used alongside HCL’s Smart Tie range of straps.

HCL director Peter Coles said, “The Smart Protector is already attracting significant attention from a broad range of oil majors and service companies involved in onshore and offshore exploration, drilling and completions. It avoids the use of metal and can be exposed to the extreme environments present in today’s wells. It is also guarantees lower friction than metal alternatives, can be used for multiline installations and will not hang up in the BOP stack.”

The launch of Smart Protector follows the launch of the High Speed SM-FT-3000 Air Tool used for both Smart Ties & Smart Band, as HCL Clamping invests in expanding its portfolio of products for both subsea and downhole applications.

Mr. Coles added, “We intend to build on our experience of developing polymer products for the oil and gas sector and double our range of cables protectors, ties and bands in the next 12-months.”
